What is alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)?
Alpha – fetoprotein (AFP) is synthesized primarily in the liver and yolk sac of the fetus. It is secreted into fetal serum, reaching a peak at about 13 weeks gestation and gradually declining thereafter. Elevated serum AFP levels reappear during pregnancy and in conjunction with several malignant diseases such as testicular cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, viral hepatitis and cirrhosis. Normal AFP value in healthy men and non-pregnant women is less than 20ng/ml, but in pregnant women, it varies according to the age of fetus and woman’s weight and race.
